[icecast] VBR reencoding @128k problem

I've noticed that when I try to reencode VBR mp3s to broadcast @128k , they are not being reencoded at all.  They stream as normal VBRs  I am unable to reproduce this at lower bitrates (56-112k i've specifically tested and all work fine).  It does reencode all non-VBR mp3s appropriately to 128k... Any ideas why VBR reencoding would suddenly stop working at 128k?

I've attempted to hunt through the source files of both ices and lame, but lack the knowledge to fully understand much of it ;)

I'm using ices 0.2.2 compiled with lame beta-3.8.9

Any ideas why and how to fix (short of using CBR or streaming at a different bitrate) ?

Thanks in advance! :)
